Run Salt Command Locally

Control your computers with Salt

You can run Salt commands locally, and see the result immediately. This is useful for practice, testing and quick setup. The same Salt functions work in both Linux and Windows, so if you can't remember how to stop a daemon in Windows, this can help, too.

The most important state functions are pkg, file, service, user and cmd.
